Bullis School has a proud heritage. Founded in 1930 by Commander William F. Bullis in downtown Washington, D.C., Bullis was originally established as a preparatory school for the United States Naval Academy. Having outgrown its city facility, the school moved to Silver Spring, Maryland, in 1934 and subsequently began to offer a four-year college preparatory program. Bullis moved to its present campus in the early 1960s. Since then, Bullis has evolved into an independent, coeducational, ten-year, college preparatory school.
Bullis is governed by an independent Board of Trustees that includes several alumni as well as parents. Bullis's annual expenses are met through tuition, the annual giving program and endowment. The Alumni Association, which represents the schools 4,000 graduates, and the Parents Association contribute significantly to the ongoing programs. Bullis is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and the Maryland Department of Education. It is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools, Independent Education, the Association of Independent Maryland Schools, the Secondary School Admission Test Board and The Black Student Fund.
